A Weevil (Curculionidae) with waxy decorations produced from its cuticle as a camouflage strategy.

Some weevil species produce a waxy secretion from glands in their cuticle which is used as part of a camouflage strategy. This waxy coat can assume some bizarre shapes and orientations but does nothing to slow down or restrict the weevil’s movement.
